My work concentrates on universal human experiences, birth, death and the secrets of the human consciousness, and found its roots in the psychoanalytical foundation The work are crossovers between bodymouvements, landscapes and cinema.

The experimental investigation addresses to the whole field of the audio-visual arts, as well to the outside – where a dialogue is possible with the other arts : soundartists, performers, painters, writers, choreographers – as within – where the audio-visual arts are confronted with itself, even in it’s hybrid state like it is now : crossovers. There is also a multiple level linguistic research: visual, linguistic and musical. As long if it is lived out and not invented. I dislike actual art, it’s already outdated as so many things in the contemporay artscene.

Video art is no longer an innocent play-thing of conceptual art. The awareness of the fact that videoart as medium has a history of forty years. So it’s important to research the historical developments of videoart. With this in mind I also refers to the film history.

The relationship between concept and intuition – between theory and practice is like going through an airlock. You can only open the door before you when the door behind you closes. The time spend in the airlock is reflection. The artist may not forget to make a dialogue with society. Looking beyond borders, reseach and investigation in collaborations, positioning oneself in society. The work offers transgressive possibilities for re-imagining the past, the present and also the future.
